The Gatsby Charitable Foundation seeks to fill in the funding gaps for early career researchers

Top tips

  • With its Small Grants programme, Gatsby specialises in funding elements that would not attract UK Research and Innovation interest, including equipment and pilot project work.
  • Grants are open to all, but early career researchers are favoured when equally strong bids are in competition.
  • The charity is not averse to risk as long as the underlying science is sound.

Founded by David Sainsbury, a former chair of the Sainsbury’s supermarket chain founded by his great-grandfather, the Gatsby Charitable Foundation has a diverse range of interests, including neuroscience, art and African economic development.
